sorry to hijack your thread op, but thought i may aswell ask here.
I was not evan aware of this de-activsion on consoles, i thought that once you de-leated your profile then everything would be deleated.
Now in the last year, i sold a ps3 to my nephew, and had one which went wrong - i returned to gamestation and got a replacement and another i traded in for the new xbox - but then traded xbox back for ps3 - yes i no a mistake, but i never de-activeated any one them (just deleted my profile)
Since i read this thread, and became aware of this de-activation stuff, i since went round to my nephews house and seen a couple of games i bought were still preseant - i have now de-activated fully. he said to me that he did not evan know that they were there, as he only seems to play COD4 and thats it.
This is also the case with the ps3 i returned / traded to gamestation, i just deleted profile and asumend everyting would be deleted (just like the xbox)
so that would now mean the ps3's i returned are still activated right ? and also some content which i bought would still be presant ?
Is there anyway round this so i can get them ps3's deactivated. and content removed, would gamestation of done this, Im piticuary concerned now about the one i traded in as the would of re-sold that as pre-owend
like i said i had no idea about de-activating consoles, Is there a chance i could now get banned ?
I doubt very much the OP has just been banned for game sharing out of the blue, more than likely somebody from the gamesharing group was looking to get some of their 5 games activations back, so they contact sony and say their account has been Phished/hijacked/stolen, Sony look into it and see said account is active on other PS3, and ban them........simple.
The whole reason for 5 activations is in case you have a failed uinit or have more than one console,
Gameshare is at your own risk, not because sony will catch you, but more than likely whoever is buying the games on their account and sharing and charging others to access the games can at any stage contact sony and claim their account has been stolen...and bang, they get all the games and their 5 activations back, and the rest of the gamesharser group at worst get a banned PS3.
Answer to your assumtion we are ALL a tight group of REAL friends NOT online buddies.
SONY have just caught up with me
ALL info must be logged somewhere ???
STOP BEING TIGHT
Hey i also got banned from Psn and still am i was on youtube and i was trying to know how long i got banned and its said that you could get permanetly banned after you do the same thing twice like you have 3 strikes and it was my first time getting banned and i dont know how long...... So far it has been like 3 weeks and i read that the first strike is for 2 weeks , 2 strike is 1 month, 3 is a perminate ban, so i dont know why i am banned for more than 2 weeks, and i think i got banned because i gave someone my acc info becuase he said he would do me 10th prestige hack on my acc..

You should never ever share your account information with anyone else.
^ Hope you got her name (for future ref). That's not how a ban resulting from Game Sharing should work. First they will MAC ban your PS3 and then ban your PSN account (especially so if you've been game sharing). Just be warned, regardless of what you've been told, trying to circumvent a ban by buying a new console may not work how you expect. Yes, your new console will work but your account may not.
haven't read everything yet(so i dont know if some one said this yet) but if he has got a psn ban he could not post here i would think
I found out last night I have a (8002A227) psn sign in error.
I phoned Sony up this morning, a nice lady answered and basically said they have Permanently Banned my PS3 from PSN.
I game shared ( I KNOW STUPID )
My question is;
Locked game saves like Rockband 1, 2 & Lego which are mine.
If I transfered them onto a new PS3 would there be a possibility of my new one getting banned also ???
any help greatly appreciated
You should really pm a mod ,, speaking from past experience some games will work on another account and some wont,I lost a few hundred in dlc and games when I got banned.
That's why i buy my games in physical form to avoid such a problem.
